    MIDNIGHT SCREENINGS

    Friday, April 25

    AMATEUR PORN STAR KILLER 2
    at Laemmle’s Sunset 5 (8000 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood)
    Special Late Night Fangoria Weekend World Premiere screening featuring cast member guests!
    2008, Cinema Epoch, This sequel to the cult mockumentary AMATEUR PORN STAR KILLER is a further shocking entry on the resume of controversial filmmaker Shane Ryan. The film follows a deranged serial killer who poses as a filmmaker to lure women into his lair. Ryan stars, co-wrote, directed and edited “Amateur Porn Star Killer 2” which has been called “a horrifying mix of grindhouse sleaze, torture porn and voyeurism that is just as intoxicating as it is creepy.”

    NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
    at the Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles)
    Special Late Night Fangoria Weekend screening featuring cast member guests!
    1968, The Weinstein Company, Director George Romero’s unqualified masterpiece pits a handful of citizens holed up in a farmhouse against a newly revived horde of flesh-eating zombies. The cast of talented unknowns headed by Duane Jones are all alarmingly believable as they fight for life, trying to escape a bad dream that gets uncompromisingly worse and more horrifying as the hours crawl by. If you’ve never seen this hackles-raising classic on the big screen, here’s your chance. With select members of the original cast in attendance. New 35mm Print!


    Saturday, April 26

    WICKED LAKE
    at the Egyptian (6712 Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles)
    Special Late Night Fangoria Weekend screening
    2008, Fever Dreams, A sensual, supernatural shocker directed by Zach Passero, based on an original screenplay by Adam Rockoff (author of Going to Pieces: The Rise and Fall of the Slasher Film). Four mysterious, attractive girls venture on a road trip for a relaxing weekend getaway. Unbeknownst to them, two clans of deranged male misfits follow them to their secluded, picturesque, lakeside cabin in the mountains. The girls appear to be easy prey for the predatory perverts until the fateful stroke of midnight, when all hell, literally, breaks loose! The film’s stellar cast features Robin Sydney (Jack Ketchum’s THE LOST, "Masters of Horror"), Carlee Baker, Eryn Joslyn, Eve Mauro, Marc Senter (THE LOST; CABIN FEVER 2), Frank Birney and Tim Thomerson. Produced by Chris Sivertson (director of THE LOST and I KNOW WHO KILLED ME).

    I'll be there in spirit, Wiz. Angus Scrimm is all kinds of awesome, and I've seen enough zombie flicks to consider George Romero a blood relative.

    APSK2 sounds like something straight out of the Troma catalogue, though. Do Not Want....
